Question for those who use GFX for portraits
1

I am not even remotely experienced at taking portraits. A few months ago, while attempting to do so with my girlfriend, using the 100s with the 80 1.7, she asked me an interesting question. I had been asking her to switch between different stationary poses, when she asked why I kept asking her to stop, with the idea that in photoshoots she had seen on tv or in movies, the subject was always moving. It got me to thinking, how many people prefer using a fast action camera like the full frame action cameras, vs a slower and deliberate camera such as the combo I used above?

Is it a question of different styles of portrait shooting? Do most models move and then stop, move and then stop? Do people use faster combos like the 110 vs the 80? Do some people just prefer a fast action camera with faster focusing than the GFX systems?

Thanks for the feedback!
